During testimony Thursday, a representative from the Attorney General's office said a contractor estimated it would cost $500,000 to remove all of the posters and garbage. He says it would cost $6 million to restore the marble inside of the Capitol building and another $1 million to touch up the marble outside of the building.Imagine how many teacher positions, textbooks and new computers the state could buy with $7.5 million. I think it is fair to say these protesters have been completely counterproductive in their efforts by costing the state even more money in avoidable costs.
